Cardinals' Deone Bucannon: Racks up eight tackles Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bucannon notched eight tackles (seven solo) during Sunday's 38-33 win versus the Buccaneers.

Bucannon's season debut was delayed until Week 4 due to his recovery from offseason ankle surgery. During that contest, he was contained to exactly 50 percent (42 of 84) of the defensive snaps. He was clearly testing the waters, though, as he's logged all 137 of those snaps over the last two games, during which he ranks second among Cards defenders with 15 tackles. At this point, Bucannon's IDP standing has solid footing for the rest of the season, assuming his health holds up.

Cardinals' Deone Bucannon: Season debut expected Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals expect Bucannon to make his season debut Sunday versus the 49ers, Kyle Odegard of the team's official site reports.

The appearance will mark Bucannon's first since sustaining a high-ankle sprain in Week 13 of last season. The team opted to avoid surgery initially, but he underwent the knife in early May with the hope of a return by the regular-season opener. While those expectations were clearly optimistic, the Cardinals will be gifted a key member of the defense Sunday. If active, he'll split reps at dollar linebacker with rookie Haason Reddick.

Cardinals' Deone Bucannon: Full walkthrough Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bucannon (ankle) participated in full at Wednesday's walkthrough, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Bucannon has missed the first three games of the season as he completes his recovery from May ankle surgery. If Wednesday's activity level is any indication, he's poised to return to the lineup, but head coach Bruce Arians has already said Bucannon will "be on a snap count" when he eventually takes the field. The Cardinals have been afforded such a luxury due to the performance of rookie Haason Reddick, who has tallied 16 tackles (eight solo) through three games at dollar linebacker. A timeshare of sorts could represent Bucannon's first game or two, but he should take over the role full-time at some point in the near future.

Cardinals' Deone Bucannon: No go for Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bucannon (ankle) is inactive for Monday's game against the Cowboys, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

He was thought to have had a chance at playing in this one, but it turns out Bucannon's return will need to wait at least another week. His role would've been limited, anyway. Rookie Haason Reddick figures to remain in an expanded role in Bucannon's continued absence.

Cardinals' Deone Bucannon: May play in Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bucannon (ankle) appears to be trending toward his season debut Monday against the Cowboys, Mike Jurecki of Arizona Sports 98.7 FM reports.

Although Bucannon replicated his practice participation from last week with a limited showing Thursday, head coach Bruce Arians said the dollar linebacker will "be on a snap count" in his first game action since May ankle surgery. If he's active Monday, Bucannon may not play exclusively at money backer, as he's been building up his knowledge of the other LB positions. IDP relevance may be difficult to come by right away, though, due to the performance of rookie Haason Reddick (15 tackles) in his stead.
